DON'T POST YOUR VACATION PLANS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Summer Security Tips

Social Media is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, but don't forget it's very public. Thieves also like reading about your vacation plans and can often track down your address.

AVOID POSTING: "packing for the trip", "just got to lake", or "just landed", etc. 


Break'in's rarely occur when you are at home - so in addition to arming your Reed Security alarm system you will want to make it look like you are still there.

  • Cancel the newspaper
  • Have someone cut the grass and water your flowers
  • Have someone pick up your mail
  • Park an unused vehicle in the driveway
  • Install exterior motion lights (and make sure you test them)
  • Install timers for interior lights
  • Consider ALARM.COM Interactive Services. Control your lights, locks, blinds, temperature, and video cameras remotely

For even more helpful tips visit reedsecurity.com 

Did You Know: A monitored Reed Security alarm system with 24/7 Rapid Response Monitoring will decrease the odds of having a break-in by nearly 400%.

P.SThe first year is only $5 a Month

CONSUMER WARNING: JUST SAY NO TO DOOR TO DOOR SALESPEOPLE

Consumer Warning

It's that time of year when you will be getting pressured by door to door salespeople. They would like to sign you up to "limited time offer" that expires "right away". And before you know you know it you're on the hook for thousands of dollars. (This happens several thousand times each year).

The Pressure:

  • Sales person won't leave even when you tell them to "Leave"
  • Sales person won't leave when you tell them "No Thanks"
  • Sales person won't leave when you say "I Already Have Your Products or Service"
  • Sales person name drops the name of your neighbor and makes it sound like "they signed up" or "they bought one" or "they referred me to you"
  • Sales person comes to the house more than once

The Solutions:

  1. Put Up Your Hand and "Say NO". Immediately close the door and the sales person will eventually leave.
  2. Tell them "You are Trespassing" and that you will call the BBB Better Business Bureau, Consumer Protection Branch and the Police if they do not leave.

    BBB   1-888-352-7601
    Consumer Protection   1-877-880-5550 
    Saskatoon Police   
    (306) 975-8300 
    RCMP (Saskatoon)   (306) 975-5173
    or call your Local Detachment

     
  3. Always Get 3 Quotes for whatever you consider purchasing. This gives you the time to gather information and to check if the "deal" being presented to you is the best option.
  4. Never Accept Quick Delivery of a product or service. This gives you a cooling off period and more time to gather facts.
  5. If you did proceed with the offer You Have 10 Days to Change Your Mind and CANCEL (and get a full refund). It's the Law in Saskatchewan.
  6. Don't Forget - You may already be in a contract for the products or services being offered to you.

HD VIDEO MYTHS AND FACTS

 

 HD Video Myths & Facts

We have spent thousands of hours perfecting ReedHD Hi-Def Camera designs and installations. We know the right cameras for the right locations and we've even met with the Saskatoon Police to determine how to solve more crimes.

We've installed over 
5000 cameras in Saskatchewan and wanted to share with you some common Myths.


Myth #1:  HD Video Cameras Always Capture Faces and License Plates

  • False
  • Many factors have an effect on the image quality - camera type, camera placement, distance to the target, target speed, the weather, light conditions, and video management software.
  • Click Here to See How ReedHD Cameras can Record Faces and License Plates


Myth #2:  HD Video Camera Images Can Be Manipulated Like on TV Shows and Movies

  • False
  • Hollywood glamorizes what you can do with recorded HD images and most of what you see on TV cannot be done.
  • ReedHD I.P. Video Management Software has an exclusive Display Adjustment feature (see images above).
  • We can adjust the brightness and contrast of recorded video to provide the Saskatoon Police an image they can use.
  • We can also Zoom In on recorded video to see Faces and License Plates (see Myth #1).   


Myth #3:  Wireless HD Video Cameras Can Be Installed Anywhere

  • False
  • Wireless HD cameras can transmit wireless signals, but still require a power source.
  • Most HD cameras are not wireless.
  • HD cameras must be plugged into a power outlet or wired into a network.
  • We can create a wireless bridge and transmit signals many KM's when there is direct line of site.
  • Trees, windows, buildings, walls, and RF interference have a direct effect on signal quality.
